I have a cousin who enlisted in the marines. The first in our family. This is pretty big deal and we’re extremely proud of this decision to protect us and go into the armed forces. His younger sister(tumblr) went Parris Island, SC for his graduation and captured this sunrise with her android.
A final salute to Blockbuster Video. It was great to smell your signature cheap plastic interior one last time and peruse through your even cheaper selection before your doors close forever. Thanks for the memories, you will be missed. #GoodnightSweetPrince #Blockbuster #SemperFi
On August 8th, 2014, student and photographer Devin Mitchell began backpacking/traveling the west coast in search of veteran stories in hopes of documenting these individuals through the art of pictures. The Veteran Vision Project is an independent, privately funded and organized academic photo essay of American military service members through a series of images. The mission is to help veterans heal by providing them with a voice.
We hope all veterans get the support they need. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
